Association Contre l’Exploitation Sexuelle des Enfants au Mali (ACESEM) is the first non-profit organisation in Mali fighting all forms of sexual exploitation of children. It was created in December 2018 by former staff members of ECPAT Luxembourg. ACESEM’s office is located in Bamako but also works in the regions of Segou and Sikasso. The organisation aims to expand its area of influence and work to also reach other locations in the country. Prevention, protection, and rehabilitation of child victims constitute the three main areas of work of ACESEM.
